The Right Way To Use Body Oil

The Right Way To Use Body Oil

If you've tried body oil in the past and thought "My skin is so dry" or "Body oil doesn't work for me"…. you could be using your body oil wrong!

Here's the thing about body oil: it’s a moisturizer that doesn't have any water in it. This means it is great at moisturizing, but not so great at hydrating.

This is great for two reasons:

1. With the absence of water, there is more room for skin nourishing ingredients. (Water can account for a majority of a lotion...like 60, 70 even 80%!)

2. With the absence of water, most body oils do not require a preservative.

That being said, it's on the user to add the water back into this experience if we want to hydrate our skin. The easiest way to do that is by applying body oil right after you get out of the shower while skin is still damp!

You can even use your body oil in place of shaving cream!
